The death of the Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga shocked all Ugandans. He led a procession for the way the cross on Good Friday leaving those who saw him both physically and on television unprepared for his death.
If you ask me, the Catholic Church has lost his great contribution to the Faith because his preaching has been a great pillar. His advice not only influenced the youth but also older people.
There is now a saying that Archbishop Lwanga lived with Jesus, walked along the way of the cross on Good Friday and died with Him.
Not long ago, on 4th December, the Muslim fraternity lost one of its greatest orators Sheikh Nuhu Baate Muzaata, ‘’Empologoma y’obusilamu’’ (the Lion of Islam).
His dedication to fighting injustices against the Muslim Community will not be forgotten anytime soon.
These two men share a lot in common not forgetting their charisma towards each faith their wise sayings and the influence they have on either religion.
Their deaths have lots of things in common too but let’s focus on the major ones. Firstly both deaths are mysterious as Sheikh Muzaatas medical reports are concealed up to now and yet Lwanga’s death is said to have been a heart attack after the post-mortem.
Secondly the political question about their summons have led poor Ugandans to conclude that their deaths are not medical but rather political. Serious isn’t it!
But not to mention our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are going to miss the wisdom both men portrayed in their actions and speeches and nothing whatsoever can seem to cover the gap they have left.
This world is not our home though. From the Lord we come and to him we return. May their souls Rest In Peace.
